Carnival Cruise Line says it is cancelling five cruises from Australia at the beginning of next year as well as its cruises scheduled for November out of two Florida ports.

The cruise line had previously announced it was cancelling for the rest of the year all US cruises except for trips out of Port Canaveral and Port Miami following an extension of a no-sail order until October 31 by the US Centers for Disease Control.

But the announcement on Monday scrapped trips in November on the six ships operating out of the two Florida ports.

Cruises are still planned for December out of the two Florida ports.

“Carnival continues to work on protocols and procedures that would allow for the resumption of cruise operations, with a gradual, phased-in approach, designating Miami and Port Canaveral as the first two homeports for embarkations,” the cruise line said in a statement.

The cruise line said it was notifying guests that five cruises on Carnival Splendor out of Sydney next January and February have been cancelled.

Guests can either get credit or a full refund.
